About Peter
I was asked to describe my approach in two words “fair but firm” was my reply. Okay that is three words but I always try to give that little bit more. I have been a specialist family lawyer for over 35 years. I am an examiner for and part of the technical board of the Law Society Advanced Family Law Panel.  This means I set and mark the examinations that other aspiring specialists take. I like to think (and more importantly client’s and fellow professionals agree) that I know what I am doing.
I believe that clients need to be advised fully and in as much detail at the outset so that their expectations of what is achievable and realistic are clear. I try to negotiate and settle cases as early as possible as this is of greatest benefit to the clients, their children and their pockets.
Where a couple have children, maintaining their relationship as parents is incredibly important. This belief led me to be one of the first solicitors to become a mediator over 20 years ago; one of the first collaborative family lawyers; and now one of the first Family Law Arbitrators able to deal with both finances and children’s issues. 
I owe you a great debt of gratitude for the kind, helpful, empathic way you dealt with me and went about your business at a time in my life when I was suffering huge emotional pain. I did not really understand what was happening to me but you did, and your advice was invaluable".

My husband and I can talk to each other again as parents and the children are much better because of this”. “I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you”.
